Bruno Mars named Billboard Artist of the Year

NEW YORK (AP) - Miley Cyrus may have twerked her way into our collective consciences this year and Justin Timberlake dominated sales. But neither of them has what Bruno Mars will take away from 2013: winner of artist of the year honors from Billboard magazine. He says getting the title is "flattering" and "just an honor." Mars had a number one hit with "When I Was Your Man" and a top 5 hit with "Treasure." This, as his second solo album, "Unorthodox Jukebox," ended up selling close to 2 million albums. Taylor Swift is the year's top female artist for Billboard and top new act and top group honors go to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
